Jungle Journey Thursday

A summary of the whole week will be posted Sunday night.

Our Final Night's C was Consummation.
At the end of the Bible, in Revelation, we see the return of Christ, the end of sin and the curse.
This week, we learned about Jesus humbly coming to earth as a baby in a manger and humbly dying on the cross and then rising from the dead.
In Revelation, we see that one day Jesus will return gloriously!

Our memory verse, Revelation 21:4, summarizes this truth.




Our final total for Faith In Deeds offering was over $800.  Thank you so much for giving to this home for orphaned and abandoned children.

Despite having lower numbers than in previous years, we are excited about the opportunity to minister to the children and families brought to VBS this year.

Singing 

Serving

Thank you to everyone who served in so many different ways.  It was great to see church members serving children, praying, and singing praises to God.

Jungle Journey Wednesday

TONIGHT, C'S ARE CHRIST AND THE CROSS!

The answer to our sin problem is JESUS!  

In our Opening Session, we used a verse from Faith In Deeds' VBS a couple of weeks ago - Ephesians 2:8,9

We wanted to show the kids at the very beginning of the night - before anything else - that salvation is a gift from God through Jesus Christ. 

We didn't sing this Seeds Family Worship song, but it is a great Ephesians 2:8 reminder. 


Our memory verse tonight is John 1:12

For the 2nd -6th graders




For the Toddlers through 1st graders


Tonight, our offering for Faith in Deeds went OVER $500!!

Praise the Lord, and thank you, boys and girls, for helping orphaned and abandoned kids in India.

Think about how they could earn money to bring in for the offering. 

For pictures from VBS, go to our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/trinitybaptistgr/

Prayer Requests and Ideas for tomorrow will be shared later.

The C for our final night is Consummation.

Once again, some verses to help you focus on the Bible, Thursday's theme of Consummation.

Acts 2:1-6
Ephesians 2:19-22
1 Timothy 3:14-15
Revelation 21:1-4
Revelation 21:22-27

Things to pray for

  • Thanks 
    • for God's provision in creation, and especially in Christ.
    • for the families that God brought to VBS.
  • Ask
    • for teachers to faithfully teach God's Word

    • for opportunities to follow up with families who don't have a home church.
    • that every serving this last night of VBS would glorify God and help others do the same.

Jungle Journey Tuesday

 We had a great second night with a bad theme.

Man is sinful.  (Corruption - Adam and Eve sin; Catastrophe - The Judgment of the Flood; Confusion - The Tower of Babel)

The memory we learned tonight is Psalm 14:3.

For the 2nd -6th graders


For the Toddlers through 1st graders


These are pictures from the 4th - 6th grade lesson.






However, in our closing session, we wanted to leave them with the hope we can have in Christ because of what He did for us on the cross.

We sang two songs, Jungle Jam, from the year's VBS set of songs, and Nothing But the Blood by CityAlight.

Pray for Wednesday night as we share Christ and the Cross!!

Regarding our offering for Faith In Deeds, the girls won, but even more importantly, we raised more than $200 for Faith In Deeds, and we still have two nights left.  We encouraged the kids to think about how they could earn money to bring in for the offering.
